Fascinating dinner and general gassing with various bods from McLaren before, during and after the launch of the 650S at the Geneva motor show

Which car do they think is the key rival to the new small McLaren - codenamed P13 - that will go on sale later this year at the £100-120k mark?

The Porsche 911 GT3, with a small but surprisingly slight nod in the direction of the 911 Turbo at the same time. Which gives you a pretty decent indication about what sort of car McLaren is building.

Why have they still not published a definitive Nurburgring lap time on the P1 when internet speculation continues to suggest that the car might not be able to beat that magic seven minute barrier? "Because if you're a poker player - and I'm not - you never want to show your hand too soon" said Woking's head of sales and marketing, Greg Levine.
